Bridging the Gap
What is it?
Who’s it for?
The 2021 Launch
Although a full launch of the Bridging the Gap project was delayed as a result of Covid-19, we were still able to make a start before the lockdown began when students from Kingsford Community School in Newham met a group of pensioners at their local library. One of the teachers overseeing this described it as “one of the most wonderful experiences of his teaching career”. We therefore can’t wait to get started again in 2021. Covid-19 has been particularly tough for older people and the young – for different reasons. Being able to share their experiences of lockdown and perspectives on the pandemic will bring the generations even closer together and enrich the creative outputs of this project. It will help to address some of the loneliness and isolation that has been endured. We hope to end up with a unique anthology and a time capsule for future generations to understand this exceptional point in time.
